You might not be on one like Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, or Drake, but you can at least own one – an HTC One Series phone, that is. The HTC One Series includes the One X, One S, and One V. Your guess is as good as mine regarding the letters, but in my mind I’m going with X-cellent, Super, and Verisimilitude. Each phone will debut with the latest version of Google’s Android operating system (dubbed Ice Cream) and vastly improved camera technology that is supposed to help with low light shots and overall image clarity.
HTC’s One X is the flagship phone in the line, including everything but the proverbial kitchen sink. It’s made of white polycarbonate and features an enormous 4.7-inch Gorilla glass coated 1280×720 non-pentile Super LCD 2 display. That huge screen is a perfect showcase for the phone’s 8-megapixel camera that can record 1080p video while shooting pictures at the same time. It’s even got an LED flash that supports 5 levels of brightness. In the front there is a 1.3 megapixel camera for HD video conferencing. It’s dropping on AT&T.
The middle-of-the-road HTC One S actually carries over a lot of the features from the One X. The only real changes come in the design department and in the chip used. It’s thinner than 60s era Twiggy and has a unibody design made out of aluminum alloy. There’s a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display instead of the monstrous one found on the X, and inside there’s a new dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 (MSM8260A). T-Mobile subscribers, this one’s for you.
The HTC One V is aimed at people who want a dope phone at a low price, but don’t mind if some bells and whistles are absent. Looking something like HTC’s old Legacy phone, it’s got a black and grey unibody shell with a generous 3.7-inch Gorilla glass touchscreen. There’s 4GB of on-board memory, 512MB of RAM, and support for GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth. It’s also got a 5-megapixel camera that can record 720p video.
All of these phones should be available later this spring.
